Story

The movie opens with a man committing suicide in a house. Later, a beautiful couple (Manoj Nandam and Sainisha) enters the same house. But ever since they shifted the house, they face so many problems. A kid (Baby Sanjana) enters the house claiming that Manoj Nandam is her father. There is also a parallel track about a boy who has aspires to become a director falls in love with a mysterious girl. Later, he finds out some shocking truths about her. What are they? Who is the baby and is she really related to the hero? forms the rest of the story. 

Review

Though the first half is very slow and nothing much happens in the story, most of the scenes felt dragged and failed to engage the audience. Also, the parallel track doesn't have anything to do with the main plot in the first half, and it kinds of irks some of the audience. Also, the parallel story suddenly disappears in the second half. The twists and turns in the second half are unexpected and impressive.  

Director Jagdish Dugana took an interesting storyline for the film and embedded so many twists and turns in the film. The snail-paced screenplay became the biggest setback and the director connected both the parallel stories in a really interesting manner. The twists that get revealed in that process are also quite intriguing. Though the songs are just average, the BGM is impressive. The camera work is also worth appreciating.  

Manoj Nandam is too good in his role and he is one of the major driving factors behind the film. Ravi Varma's acting is quite impressive and his outstanding performance added much strength to the film. Having a known face like Srikanth Iyengar also helped a lot for the film. Care Of Kancharapalem Fame Uma Maheshwar Rao delivered an honest performance in the movie. Allu Ramesh impressed with his screen presence. Baby Sanjana looked cute and performed well. The rest of the actors also made their presence felt. 

Verdict 

Despite having an intriguing story, the director has failed to execute the story properly with his slow-paced narration. However, the film has some bright and intriguing moments with some unexpected twists.
